AEDM 2011: Day 4 A quick sketch

My work table on Nov 3rd (I´m posting each day what I created the day before):
The plan is to cut all those cardbox boxes, gesso/base paint them and work on a series called "Facing my fears" which truly means putting a face to each of them.
Here´s the first sketch, my fear of not being liked.

Yesterday my garden looked as if it had snowed. Here are some pictures to tell you the whole story.
This is a very young "palo borracho" tree in our back yard.
This is his sibling. Planted at the same time but in a much much muuuuuuuuch smaller pot.
Both are offsprings from my neighbour´s "palo borracho" tree planted from seed.
The black seeds are inside these fluffy cotton like ... oohhhh... eerrmmmm... how is it called? ... ok, then ... thing. :D
In early winter you can see the hard skinned fruits and then by early spring the cover falls (beware of sitting under these trees then, when I say hard I really mean hard) and you can see the fluffy material that will fall like snow in late October/early November.

I can't imagine anyone not liking you, Paula, so no worries there. Nice sketch!

What a very interesting tree too. I see they belong to the Baobab family.

Great idea of working in a series!
I think, too, it was brave of you to sketch fear. :)

Happy PPF!!

Dropping in to see what you're up to...fabulous idea that: drawing your fears. Can't wait to see where this takes you. And - and that tree again. I am in love with the idea of that tree tho I may never actually see one. My husband has a lemon tree we dutifully put out every spring and bring back in every fall (along with a bunch of other tropicals). He grew it from a seed. It has never flowered. He loves it. He has loved it for over 20 years now!I love that you grew your trees from seed to - that makes it so special!

I like seeing your workspace and all your supplies lining up on the table.

Very artsy!

I'm looking forward to seeing how your series turns out!

I like the monster you have sketched, and I think we are all afraid of something; I know I am! Have a wonderful weekend, Valerie

Your drawing is very scary! Good job at depicting fear.
